I'm sure Billy Martin has been waiting for him to show up! I hate the Yankees as well, but the guy did win championships- I wish the Mets had that kind of success.

I'm a Yankee + Steinbrenner fan but...........

they did win Championships in 27% of non George years vs 19% with him at the helm.

nobody ever seems to mention that.

i will always remember the class he showed when the Red Sox came back from the 0-3 deficit and were having their long on-field celebration at Yankee Stadium. His simple act of telling everyone to "leave the lights on" showed respect for a winning team and a historic moment in baseball.


as for all the crappy things he did? well, nobody's perfect...
